Purple Cone Flowers from Evelyn Leavens to Daisy Lynn Rudert

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Purple Cone Flower Lovers…Today I was taking our new young Mayor on a spectacular summer morning walk.  Daisy Lynn stopped to smell around at a front yard garden that I love.

She usually pulls right past it and I get a fleeting glance at the ever changing beautiful flowers that bloom and glow.

So we rested and reflected.

Then it hit me.  I think my buddy Evelyn was one of the bumble bees buzzing the purple cone flowers.

Evelyn used to end some of her e-mails with,

“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.”

Thanks to Inga Maria for sharing this photo with me back in 2006.

It was really appreciated today!

More loving purple cone flowers, bumble bees, and moments later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB buzzing around the rainbow flowers)

    Sandy – those are not mine. They are in a garden we walk past on our way to the park. I am going to plant some. I adore them. You can’t go wrong attracting hummingbirds!!!
